He sounded like a new Carter to us, which is good news a new Reagan will replace him in 2012.

I was disappointed in the speech as it was too long, he did not give any sense of direction, he has got to offer something more than his biography, he does not have a lot of time, we expect results not more flowery rhetoric.

At least white guilt is now dead and buried for good, about time.

Good luck to him

You're now free to go back to clinging to your guns and religion - a few shots of Jim Beam might help as well.
May I also suggest a possible relocation to Alaska - you'll find plenty of fellow psuedo-real-Americans up there, plus the AIP could use your services.

I am sure that Sharon will be working very hard towards Obama's impeachment--I am sure that the right-wingers, led by Rush Limbaugh, Fox News and the Sharons of the world, will start working immediately to impugn Obama (as if they have not on this campaign anyway)

New Day Dawns Tonight: You are obviously not old enough to remember but Obama's message isn't a bit like Reagans. Obama reminds many of us oldies of Jack Kennedy; the content of Obama's message is very similar. Reagan was an old style Conservative Republican whereas Obama is a new deal Democrat their messages are very very different.

Obama is the best politician of our time! He says nothing and says it better than anyone else. He's a real rock star, he makes all the girls sigh and swoon. Enjoy your fantasies while they last kidies, in the end the only positive outcome of his presidency will be to make even Carter look competent.
